Holidays are back at Starbucks with some old favourites and a brand new addition to their festive menu, however, a few favourites have been nixed – and the reactions on social media have been less than jolly.
Starting Thursday, November 4th, when you visit a Starbucks location your hot drink will come in a festive red Starbucks cup.
Returning holiday drinks include their Peppermint Mocha, Caramel Brûlé Latte, Chestnut Praline Latte, and the Irish Cream duo.
This year, Starbucks is also introducing their very first non-dairy holiday drink!
The Sugar Oat Latte features blonde espresso, sugar cookie syrup and oat beverage, topped with red and green sprinkles for a modern twist on a holiday classic.The delicious new addition is available hot or iced!
Holiday treats include the Cranberry Bliss Bar, Gingerbread Loaf, Snowman Cookie and Peppermint Brownie Cake Pop.
Unfortunately, this year’s Starbucks holiday menu is missing two classic flavours, eggnog and gingerbread and many disappointed customers have taken to Twitter to express their opinion:
With no gingerbread or egg nog …going to be losing out on a lot of customers this year over that decision.

I will be saving lots of money this season, without the egg nog and gingerbread lattes. Not the brightest decision, Starbucks!

@StarbucksCanada why did the eggnog latte get axed? 😭
